Dog Walk Club: White Pines Nature Preserve 6/2

Dog Walk Club will meet for a walk at White Pines Nature Preserve at 548 S Rocky River Rd, Sanford, NC 27330 on Sunday, 6/2/2024.  We’ll meet at 3 pm at the first parking lot you come to on the left side.  Our hangout spot for this walk is Red Moose Brewing Company at 90 East Street, Pittsboro NC 27312.

White Pines Nature Preserve is very rustic.  There are no facilities of any kind so be prepared.  The trails are often overgrown and sometimes difficult to find.  There are lots of roots, rocks, some areas that are washed out, there are often fallen trees across the trails, and it can be muddy. You’ll want to wear good hiking boots and carry enough water for you and the pups.

I love this place!  It’s never crowded here except maybe in the rivers.  Because of the rivers and deep forests, it’s always several degrees cooler at White Pines than in Sanford.  We plan to walk Shiner’s Way to Rocky Bluffs to School Kids, then along the Rocky and Deep Rivers on River Trail (taking a dip if desired), and then up to Deep Bluffs and Gilbert Yager to finish off.

Here’s a little about Red Moose Brewing Company

From their website:  At Red Moose Brewing Company, we’re all about family.  We’re a family-owned and operated brewery located in Pittsboro, NC with a focus on community and brewing high-quality craft beer using locally sourced ingredients.  Our mission is to create, and share with you, a warm and welcoming environment that is kid and pet-friendly.  Our goal is to bring you great beer and good company every time you come in our door!

I can state with confidence they have achieved their mission!  Super nice folks and they have great beer.  There are lots of eateries in that area of downtown Pittsboro if you want to bring something in to snack on.  They also sometimes have food trucks. The dogs are allowed inside which is nice when it’s hot or the weather is icky.

If you want to just meet us at the hangout spot, there are no judgments 😄

About Dog Walk Club:

Dog Walk Club meets in Sanford on the 1st Sunday and in Southern Pines on the 3rd Sunday of the month. We vary the walks and hang-out spots- and yes we definitely take suggestions! Littles are welcome as long as they can keep up (we’re not fast, trust me).

Jael and Dr. Meghan provide Fear Free training tips to help your dog walk nicely on a loose leash. We do not accept any dog on a slip lead or a choke, prong, or shock collar into our club. If your dog needs training, it will be with positive reinforcement, so don’t feed your dog before the walk, and bring lots of tasty treats. Jael conducts a private 2-session Leash Walk Boot Camp Training Course for anyone whose dogs need of more assistance.

Everyone is welcome to join us in this free community event. So grab a dog, your family, and a human friend, and hang out with us!
